    Sizing down and expecting that stretch to that of one tagged size up is a bit hopeful. It is possible but why not just wear a belt?

    I have a pair and have the same issue, sizing down shouldn't be a problem since the legs will stretch out. I remember a few people before saying they had sized down 2 in them.

    to be quite frank I like how 32x32 looks , bit more aggressive. It's really just the waist that would need to stretch out.

    Plus, where talking about a pair of jeans with 3% elastane not a 100% cotton- so stretching 1 tagged sized is not improbable . Just need confirmation from those who have actually owned the item at question.

    Yeah? (so basically this is an indication of good quality?) And what do you usually use it for? At most I'd probably just need it to carry a note book, 1 textbook, and a 15 inch laptop ...

    IMO, the elastane means less stretching. Yes, it'll stretch out, but remember it will also stretch back into shape. My Uniqlo MIJ pair has less diaper butt than every other pair of raw denim I've own. My 2 cents is to just wear a belt.

    NOTE: I have also sized down one - I wear MIJ's one size smaller than my usual Uniqlo pants size.

    EDIT: MIJ's are 100% cotton, so disregard this.

    The past two seasons all jeans with spandex have been produced in china, was this not the case in the past? Sounds like you own/are taking about the 100% cotton varation? Or perhaps you're just refering to Uniqlo's Japanese sourced denim?

    Looks like you're right. In the past their raw Japan-sourced denim for their regular jeans was 3%. This is my first pair of MIJ's though, and the tag says 100% cotton.

    Yea, good quality. The backpack will hold that load well; I mostly used it for school where I carried a laptop two textbooks and a binder.

    for anyone interested in what the dry easy jacket is like, I ordered a small and a medium (wasn't sure which size I was) and the fabric is very soft, light and unlined. no shoulder padding and it has a bit of a stretch to it. The fabric is pretty fine, but not like sweatshirt material. someone a couple pages back said its kind of like workout material and I'd say that seems pretty accurate, as its a cotton/poly blend. Sort of reminds me in a way of exersize shirts, how the fabric is kind of 'slick,' not really sure how to describe it.

    Anyway, I think i'm a size small, but the size small I got appears to be an XS that was mistagged, as it matched up with the XS measurements on the website, so i'll have to return them and order a small again.

    might do tomorrow if i have the time, but it will be one picture of a skin tight jacket, and one picture of a size-too-big jacket.
